Two letters from Erlangen physics groups have made it into the february issue of the journal Nature Physics. This is extremely exceptional as letter contributions are quite rarely in the highly renowned journal (total number of 6 in this issue). The contribution entitled “Quantum imaging with ...

Physicists at the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), the University of Hamburg and the research facility DESY have succeeded for the first time in revealing tiny structures using an imaging method that relies on the usual diffraction of light, but which does not require the scattered light to be coherent. With conventional imaging methods using the diffraction of coherent light, scientists have to go to considerable lengths to ensure the coherence of the radiation, i.e. the electromagnetic waves must remain in phase during the scattering process. The new method uses incoherent light instead.

Assembling electronic building blocks from single molecules is a main objective in nanotechnology. An interdisciplinary research group at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) has made a major step towards this goal. The groups of Prof. Dr. Sabine Maier, Prof. Dr. Milan Kivala und Prof. Dr. Andreas Görling have suceeded in assembling and investigating wires and networks from newly developed single molecules as building blocks. These could form the basis for future opto-electronic devices like flexible screens or sensors. Their work has been published in „Nature Communications“.
